with you. 97 house republicans have sent a letter to the president to discourage him from nominating u.n. ambassador susan rice as secretary of state. and this follows andrea mitchell's reporting yesterday that it was the intelligence community, not the white house, that changed talking points about the unclassified data that could be discussed when susan rice went out on the sunday talk shows to discuss what was known about the benghazi situation. is that something that republicans are choosing to ignore, the facts of that? they're trying to draft a letter like this to almost wreck her reputation before she is even nominated. >> and frankly it doesn't matter what the house of representatives thinks. they have no say in the process. this is more of a headline scheme, frankly. this is press release politics, which is the last thing we need right now. but what is important is to look at the white house did put her out there. she did her job. i'll give her that. she spoke with the talking points she had, what she knew. the fact is the administration to put her out there with misleading info

against the president's ambassador to the u.n. susan rice. today, the president called and he said, i have had enough. >> let me say specifically about susan rice she's done exemplary work. she represented the united states and our interests in the united nations with skill and professionalism and toughness and grace. as i have said before, she made an appearance at the request of the white house in which she gave her best understanding of the intelligence that had been provided to her. if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. i'm happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. i don't think there is any debate in this country when you have four americans killed, that's a problem. we've got to get to the bottom of it. there needs to be accountability. we've got to bring those who carried it out to justice. they won't get any debate from me
for the president since september. yesterday his criticism of susan rice, the ambassador to the u.n., went too far for the president. he hit back during his press conference. let's listen. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody, they should go after me. but for them to go after the u.n. ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence that she had received? and to besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> that's the slow burn for the president i'd say. this morning mccain had some strong words for his former opponent, the president. let's listen to mccain. >> i know people don't come to spontaneous demonstrations with rockets and mortars, and for the president of the united states for two weeks afterwards to deny that that was the case is either a cover-up or it is incompetence. >> one of mccain's main allies, lindsay graham of south carolina, also responded to the president. he said, quote, mr. president, don't think for one minute i'm going to hold you ultimately responsible for benghazi. i think you f
the president up at the u.n. talk about the video. i think the talk of the video probably meant more people in the middle east watched the video that didn't even know the video was there. we now hear that general petraeus said they believe that the c.i.a., that this was a terrorist attack, al-qaeda. so who changed the talking points? it's hard for me to believe that attorney general holder never said anything to the chief of staff at the white house, never said anything to john brennan, who was the top advisor for the president with regard to in the issue and john brennan was at the c.i.a. for many, many years. so there is no information that you can really gather. and i think the congress has a right to know, but more importantly, i think the american people have to know. if you don't have a select committee that has broad-based bipartisan, they'll never find out. had you not had a watergate committee, the nixon administration was lying to the american people. they were lying to the american people and if you go back and look at it and had there not been a broad based committee of bipartis

they will not accept the nomination of u.n. ambassador susan rice as a replacement for secretary of state hillary clinton. >> we'll do whatever is necessary to block the nomination. >> reporter: senators john mccain and lindsey graham said rice was either lying or incompetent when she made this statement five days after the attack. >> we don't have information at present that leads us to conclude this was premeditated or preplanned. >> reporter: president obama said the ambassador was presenting the intelligence information she was given. he challenged those who attacked ambassador rice. >> if senator mccain and senator graham and others want to go after somebody they should go after me. >> reporter: senator mccain accepted that offer. >> the president of the united states, the commander-in-chief is the most responsible and i hope the president has no illusions about our view of his responsibility. >> reporter: mccain and graham want a watergate style committee to investigate the benghazi attack. and general petraeus will testify here on capitol hill tomorrow morning at 7:30 a.m. back to you. >>>
a unclassified briefing. why would the cia give the un ambassador who is representing the white house an unclassified briefing. >> gretchen: she is a spokes person for the united states of america and she has an unclassified briefing? i guess you could argue in the slimmest of margins that you wouldn't want to scare the american people and hide what was really going on and say it was another terrorist attack. >> there is one problem with the whole debate. the day before susan rice went on the talk shows, on the 14th. leon paneta secretary of defense with the defense department said it was a terrorist attack. defense saying it was terror and intelecommunity and state department say it was response to a movie. they are all trying to take the attention away from president obama got in air force one and flew to las vegas and did a fund raiser instead of staying at home. >> brian: and cost him no votes. >> gretchen: it will be interesting to hear what general pettigrew has to say. cheers turned to screams in a parade. a train slammed into a bus in midland, texas. >> gates started to come d

the white house remove those rernss from u.n. ambassador susan rice's talking points. >>> let's starts with the developing story out of the middle east this morning. we'll start there by telling you about the civilian casualties during the sixth day of rocket strikes between israel and gaza. 80 palestinians have been killed and 600 more injured. among them, 12 people killed last night including four women and four children when an israeli missile targeting a top hamas leader leveled a three-story building. this morning, israeli forces backed by tanks are massed along the edge of the gaza border ready for a potential all out invasion. although president obama says it would be, quote, preferable to avoid a ground war, he is making support of israel clear. >> there's no country on earth that would tolerate missiles raining down on its citizens from outside its borders so we are fully supportive of israel's right to defend itself from missiles landing on people's homes and workplaces and potentially killing civilians. >> joining us now from gaza is nbc's reporter. what's the latest this mo
of life through negotiations by diplomacy. we've got a u.n. bid coming up. how israel and the united states and the rest of the world react to that will be a huge role of how this plays out. >> congressman i'm curious from your perch in the united states house of representatives, how you observed these observed the violence in gaza and the administration's very for theright and clear support for the israeli government taking steps to in their words defend themselves. >> i've been to israel twice as a congressperson, overy differet in who you met. i think that one think about is long-time ago, eli weisel explained president reagan go to bitberg. he said i would look at the congo and afghanistan and i looked at syria, despair, dispair can never be the answer, you always have to have hope. we still have to have hope. and the problem in the middle east does appear to be despair. i think the problem is the president has to try to bring about some type of accord. is that netanyahu suffers from the same problem that romney did. they see the world only from their perspective. and it's from t
around for some beauty products. then decided to leave. bill: we are waiting for u.n. ambassador susan rice. she is back on capitol hill. yesterday she met with three top republicans who all said they were more disturbed about the situation after the meeting than they were when the meeting started. have a listen. >> i'm more convinced than ever, it was bad, it was unjustified to give the scenario as presented by ambassador rice and president obama 3 weeks before an election. bill: that was behind sa -- that was lindsey graham. you are on the record saying you will not support her if she is nominated for secretary of state. but not just because of libya. what is the problem. >> let me clarify that. my first thought is what if susan rice was thrown under the bus and they all knew she didn't have the information from the cia. then i thought you would have to feel sorry for her. since yesterday talking to some of those to whom she talked i'm convinced in my mind that she is part of the coverup, she knew all the time the cia information that was given to her. but your point is very good. i
right now in a new round of senate meetings for u.n. susan rice. she is going back after yesterday, it didn't go so well, she is going back. she will answer questions about the white house response to the consulate attack in benge, libya on 9/11 of this year. many political observers think she is trying to win supporters for a possible nomination of secretary of state. she would have to be confirmed in the senate. senator bob corker earlier said miss rice's statements may prove she is too political. the meeting between susan collins, she expressed concerns too. she is not known as a republican fire brand but she expressed concerns. these meetings come a day after three top republicans said they were more concerned about libya now after meeting with rice than ever before. here is senator collins a short time ago. >> i asked ambassador rice why she did not qualify her comments more, in light of this contradictory reporting from the president of the country. her answer was that she relied on our intelligence analysis. i don't understand why she would not have at least qualified her re
. bill: any chance republicans fold on raising tax rates? we will find out when we ask senator john f u.n. e, and conservatives say the fight is far from over. >> republicans have stood for one thing specifically, it's held them together, they are the low tax party. the other guys want to tax to match their reckless spending. if they give it up now in return for nothing obama wins and he wins big. are you receiving a payout from a legal settlement or annuity over 10 or even 20 years? call imperial structured settlements. the experts at imperial can convert your long-term payout into a lump sum of cash today. i just finished a bowl of your new light chicken pot pie soup and it's so rich and creamy... is it really 100 calories? let me put you on webcan... ...lean roasted chicken... and a creamy broth mmm i can still see you. martha: unions are stopping work at another busy california port. this scene was last week when the workers picketed at the oakland port. now it is clerical workers at the port of los angeles and nearby long beach who are on strike as well. other unions, including the d

after me. and i am happy to have that discussion with them. but for them to go after the un ambassador who had nothing to do with benghazi and was simply making a presentation based on intelligence she had received and the besmirch her reputation is outrageous. >> brian: well, that was his confrontational tone i can remember him having outside of the election and had his first press conference. she appeared on behalftime white house. how dumb was it to put out there nothing with benghazi and no background as opposed to tom brennan or tom donald or anybody else let alone david petraeus and hillary clinton. so you put somebody out there and that was your fault that got the information and we don't know whose opinions and conclusion and the president wants to call out the people who just want answers. >> gretchen: sorry, i thought you were -- >> brian: senator graham and john mccain heard this and this is what they said. >> i will hold her accountable and she volunteered for the assignment. she is incompetent when comes to benghazi and the person i blame the most is the president. my resp

death of a teenager with the gunman claiming self-defense now. >>> back on the hill, u.n. ambassador susan rice trying again today to win over republican lawmakers after round one leaves three of them unconvinced. good morning. welcome to "early start." i'm christie romans in for john on assignment. >> i'm zoraida sambolin. 5:00 a.m. on the east. half a million bucks, what do you think? are you in yet? the powerball jackpot tonight is the second largest in lottery history. that's a lot of office pools. we are in on it over here and have defied serious odds to get here. 16 consecutive powerball rollovers without a winner yet. and that streak is likely to end really soon. a lottery official calculates a 5% chance no one will win tonight if sales spike as they are expected to. and if you do happen to win the cash value of the jackpot, it now stands at 324 million dollars. but time for a quick reality check, your odds of winning are 175 million to 1. alison kosik closely monitoring powerball fever is live from new york's times square this morning. the odds are not good but the fever is r
. but the person who is really taking the heat for that is our u.n. ambassador susan rice. you know, obviously there's been a lot of criticism of her. i think there's been a lot of attempts to make it clear she did exactly what anybody in her position would have done, with those talking points, given the situation we were in on that sunday when she went on the sunday shows. you know, some of the members of the congressional black caucus have raised the question, you know, would republicans be -- using a different tone if the ambassador -- the u.n. ambassador was white? here was senator graham's response. i want to play that and then let's talk about it. >> guys like you are being criticized by, for instance, members much the congressional black caucus, they say that you and john mccain are sexist and racists as well for criticizing ambassador rice. >> well, when you can't answer the question, you attack the questioner. the only color i'm worried about when it comes to benghazi is red, blood red. >> you know, congresswoman, i'll tell you what strikes me is i'm a little cautious about getting in
, the talking points, if you will, did not originate from her or the u.n. is it appropriate she's the face of all of this in your opinion? >> thank you, tamron, for having me on. it's unfortunate that dr. rice has become the face of this, because, in fact, she is a highly regarded accomplished civil servant leading our mission in the united nations. she was put in the spotlight in order to communicate what the intelligence community and administration believed to be the best way to communicate the attack on benghazi. rightly now congress is looking at the question of what went wrong, but the question about whether or not she is personally responsible for it is a bit far-fetched, and it's really going into a point where members of congress are making themselves look silly. they're day in and day outhave different statements. the house sent a letter to house republicans on posing her potential nomination to secretary of state. less than half signed onto it. there's not much appetite for this fight. we saw it in the campaign, and we're not sure where this is heading. it does seem like a losin
that we might see tpulg those spots, chris? >> the most interesting one, i guess, is susan rice,s u.n. ambassador was considered one of the frontrunners to be the secretary of state, very popular with president, has enormous regard for her: she was one of his top policy advisers during hit 2008 campaign. this is susan rice that did the five sunday shows a few days after the libya attack in which she put out the story, apparently they claim still these were the cia talking points that this was all a spontaneous protest over the video that went bad, but there's been a lot of contradiction of that. i think she'd have a tough time getting confirmed. she might get confirmed but it would be a real battle and the president has to decide whether he wants to have that battle. somebody else that is clear is desperate for the job is massachusetts senator john kerry who of course played mitt romney in the debate. one of the questions there, i think he would sale through the senate club, on the other hand i'm not so sure that they want to lose a senate seat. they may feel with all the pick ups th
how the president wants u.n. ambassador susan rice to replace hillary clinton as secretary of state. margaret brennan joins us now. good morning. >> good morning to you, norah, and to charlie. quarterback at the u.n. when he nominated her to be the ambassador, he elevated that role to cabinet level, a status that her predecessors did not have. for this next promotion, the president will fight skeptical republicans who question rice's judgment in the days following the benghazi attacks. >> i still don't know how anybody of that capacity could have been on television five days later saying the things that were said. i don't know how that could happen. >> she would have to answer questions about that. there's no doubt about it. >> susan rice hit a nerve during a string of television appearances five days after the assault on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. she did not call it an act of terror. >> we did not have information at present that leads us to conclude that this was premeditated or preplanned. >> that characterization is the biggest obstacle to becoming secretary of state. seni
